For most of us, our physical appearance has a strong influence on our self-esteem and mood. When you have skin affected by aging or sun damage, this tends to have negative impacts in most aspects of your life. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to rejuvenate your appearance. If you are dealing with skin conditions like sun damage, fine lines or other blemishes, you may be searching for treatment options. Many people prefer to use non-surgical methods that still offer significant results. If this is your case, you should learn more about chemical peels.
A Closer Look at Chemical Peels
To put it simply, chemical peels are designed to rejuvenate the skin. There are different types, but they all involve the removal of varying amounts of skin. This encourages your body to replace old skin cells with newer, more youthful and healthier ones.
The type of chemical peel is defined by how deep it goes into the skin. There are three main types: superficial, medium and deep. Chemical peels also vary in their ingredients and the concentration of those ingredients, as well as how long they remain on the skin.
The Chemical Peel Process
Chemical peel treatments are performed in the comfort of our office without the need for anesthesia. During a typical peel treatment, the solution of choice is skillfully applied to the skin and allowed to stay there for a set amount of time. This will allow the solution to get to work as it removes the dead skin in a safe and controlled way.
What Can Chemical Peels Treat?
One of the great things about chemical peels is that they are very versatile. They can be used to address lines and wrinkles, acne, age spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and much more. Even if you don’t have one of the above skin conditions, this treatment can still benefit you if you simply want to achieve smoother, softer skin.
